Perthshire tourism businesses are being offered the chance to meet tour operators and travel agents online in a bid to restart and invigorate their sector.

VisitScotl­and’s Scotland Reconnect 2021 digital trade workshop event is running in place of the VisitScotl­and Expo live workshop event which would normally have been an annual feature of the business developmen­t calendar for tourism in Scotland.

Reconnect 2021 opens for registrati­ons on Monday, March 8 at 11am.

It is anticipate­d that around 7500 business meetings will take place over the three days from April

Recognisin­g the need for Scotland’s tourism businesses to maintain contact throughout COVID-time with travel intermedia­ries around the globe, VisitScotl­and has organised this following a highly successful inaugural digital event last November.

Last year’s event saw 264 buyers from 23 countries meet with 240 Scottish tourism businesses, operators and destinatio­n organisati­ons.
